Hi all,

As some have clearly noticed unprompted, I've now posted the first
drafts of the 5.14 API change reviews [0], in accordance with QUIP 10
[1].  Please file bugs in Jira for any changes you object to and link
those bugs to QTBUG-77839 [2], blocking it.  Please tag any changes you
make to fix issues noticed in review, either with Fixes: for such a bug
report or with a Task-number: QTBUG-77839 footer.

As ever, remember that these reviews filter out lots of trivial changes,
so check the actual 5.14 (and, where relevant, 5.13.1) sources if in
doubt about what's really there.  The boring changes filtered out of
qtbase totalled more than twice the residue presented for review.

[2] https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-77839

Feature freeze has happened, so please make no changes to 5.14's public
APIs other than fixes in response to these reviews.

If you know a module has had material changes requiring an update to the
review, please either read the commit message (it says how to update it)
or drop me a line,
